Advanced Animation Moodboard

Abstract Animation Moodboard -Recovered.jpg

For Advanced Animation, we had to create a moodboard based off of an emotion we chose at random. My word is apprehension, which means anxious or fear for the uncertain. Due to experience, I had a rather easy time choosing the images and the feeling I wanted to express. For the moodboard, I have my images on top of one another and crowding each other and it’s surrounding one center image. Although it maybe unclear in the image, the center image has a lower opacity to emphasize how the subject to anxiety slowly fades into their own thoughts. The thoughts, which are the images surrounding the center circle, are a range of things, from fear of death to hope that the person who has anxiety overcomes their fears. I have such a wide range because as somebody who frequently has anxiety and anxiety attacks, I know how out of control my thoughts can become and how random they can get. 

My inspiration for this abstract animation project is Oskar Fischinger, an animator known for using shapes and music to create a certain vibe. I want to do something similar to what Fischinger did and utilize different shapes and movement to properly describe what an anxious person goes through on a regular basis. 


About schinnery1996

My name is Shanelle Chinnery and I study Digital Media and Animation at Alfred State College. It’s my third year and the last time this bio was updated was on my very first day of college. I had ended off my previous bio with my desire to grow throughout my years here in Alfred State and with my senior year on the horizon, I’m glad to say I’ve definitely grown since that day. With the variety of classes and mediums I’ve experienced during these three years, I’ve learned what grasps my attention and what strays it away. I came into college with an unclear direction of what I wanted to do in my field and to be quite honest, I’m still not sure what direction I’m going in, but I have a better idea. I enjoy the storytelling aspect of animation, but then again I also enjoy animating in 3D and would love to explore the possibility of voice acting. While I’m uncertain about the exact route of my future, I still take great pride in the how much I’ve changed, art wise. I’ve gained knowledge and experience in endless number of programs I never thought I’d be able to work around, I’ve grown accustomed to digital art rather than traditional pencil to paper art, and most importantly, I’m just a better artist in general. I could say that is my favorite achievement and I can’t wait to see what my future holds in this field.
